Stephen did as promised and introduced Melanie to some friends. They had a good conversation, yet the problem emerged when discussing the salary.
That made Stephen feel bad. However, Melanie thought it was fine. After all, it was not that easy to get a suitable job.
“Melanie, Mr. Scott asked if you’ve prepared the conference room?” asked Yana as she
knocked on the desk.
“Yes. Here’s the conference record. Eugene might take Viola.” Melanie handed the conference record to Yana.
Yana was shocked. “Aren’t you going?”
“I have other work to do,” said Melanie casually. The secretarial department was busy. Her workload was so much that she had no time to rest.
After Yana left, Melanie proofread two documents and was about to get a glass of water from the pantry. However, she saw Yana rushing back.
When Yana saw her, she urged, “Melanie, go to the conference room. Quick! One of the meeting records is missing. Mr. Scott is angry.”
Melanie was not the one who prepared those, but Yana still dragged her to the conference
It was quiet when she was in the conference room, and Eugene had a cold expression. The atmosphere in the room was tense.
The clients had yet to arrive. Eugene happened to go to the conference room and found out that one document was missing.
Melanie looked at the time. They had only five minutes before the conference started.
“Mr. Scott.” Suddenly, Viola spoke in her cute voice. She had a record book in her hand. Dressed in an office lady’s attire, she looked more mature.
Melanie had nothing to do with this conference. She wanted to return to her office, but Viola said, “Melanie was the one who arranged this meeting, and she should have the record.”
Melanie froze. This meeting was indeed arranged when she was still Eugene’s secretary. However, she had handed everything over to Viola and Julie.
Eugene still had a cold expression as he stared at Melanie. Melanie pursed her lips. “I handed everything to Viola.”
She knew Eugene’s temper. Thus, she paused and added, “I have no access to your documents now.”
Eugene was still displeased. This conference was important. Otherwise, Melanie would not have arranged it long ago.
He was angry, indeed. Viola shrunk her neck and stood aside silently.
Those responsible for welcoming the clients were already heading to the company, yet the
atmosphere was still tense in the conference room.
Melanie lowered her eyelids and took the meeting record from Viola. Then, she stood next to Eugene and said calmly, “I remember most of the contents in the meeting records.”
She had worked in LeapCo for years, and her memory was her best talent.
However, Viola would have to leave if she were to record the meeting.
When Viola walked out of the conference room, she looked at Melanie again with a meaningful
When the staff led the clients into the conference room, Melanie spotted a familiar figure among them.
It was Joshua.
He had also noticed Melanie and smiled at her shyly.
Melanie had filled in the document that was missing. After the meeting ended, Eugene ordered expressionlessly, “Follow me to my office.”
She followed him calmly. However, Eugene scoffed when they were in his office. “I heard you want to resign.”
Melanie was apparently less enthusiastic with her work recently. There were many rumors about her wanting to resign.
“No,” Melanie answered calmly as she placed the meeting record on the table. “All the records are here. I’ll excuse myself if there’s nothing else you want me to do.”
“Melanie!” Eugene was annoyed with her attitude. She always had an expressionless look, which agitated him.
He called out her name and asked, “Are you trying to put on an aloof act before me?”
Looking away, Melanie said in a low voice, “You’re the one who asked me to stay away from you.”
Eugene was frustrated as he stared at Melanie, wanting to see through her disguise.
